Hot diggity dog! Wednesdays are my weigh days and I lost 2.2 pounds this past week! YES! My goal is to lose 1 pound a week so the extra loss is just a bonus! So excited and continued to be inspired and motivated to keep on keepin' on. (Hope you guys are too!)
You know the amazing thing for me so far is that this has really not been hard. I attribute that to the fact that I have only been changing one thing a week, gradually adding a new habit that contributes to my long term goal. Week 1 my new habit was to drink 4 bottles of water every day. Week 2, I added walking consistently for 30 minutes a day. Now that I am beginning week 3, I am going to add the habit of trying to eat a small amount ever 2 - 3 hours.
Again, the new changes being slowly implemented have not been difficult, and it feels so good to accomplish them. I even found myself drinking more than 4 bottles of water these last couple days, really without even thinking about it. That's a really big deal for me! These gradual changes are taking effect guys! And, the neat thing is that the feeling of those small success are motivating me for the next new habit. I am building on each little success.
Hey - did any of you watch The Biggest Loser last night? I did. I really love that show! I love seeing people who had once looked so hopeless, now being motivated, full of hope and seeing a future for themselves. A future that does not include staying overweight! =) Speaking of TV shows that I really love....I am going to sign off now and watch the first episode of American Idol with my man. Can't wait to see how I like the new judges and fall in love with the precious contestants.
Until tomorrow ~ sweet and slender dreams!
